Overview

The 2010 Yarra Valley Sauvignon retains the hallmark racy natural acidity and minerality of fine Sauvignon Blanc.

On the nose the wine has citrus blossom, light gooseberry and delicate lees influences. Barrel fermentation and natural yeasts provide a subtle textural quality that balances the minerally, crisp and clean finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine has a pristine, almost colourless appearance in the glass.

Aroma

On the nose the wine has citrus blossom, light gooseberry and delicate lees influences.

Palate

Barrel fermentation and natural yeasts provide a subtle textural quality that balances the minerally, crisp and clean finish.

Winemaking Note

After night harvesting, the fruit was immediately transferred to the winery where it was crushed, pressed and only minimally settled before being racked to all French oak barriques for 100% barrel fermentation. Partial indigenous fermentation, lees stirring and gentle reductive handling were employed before light fining and filtration. The finished wine was bottled under screwcap in July 2010 in order to preserve crispness and vibrancy.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Shelmerdine family has a long history managing high quality vineyards in Victoria, from the Nagambie Lakes region to the Yarra Valley and Heathcote. Each of our estate vineyards is managed to produce sustainable, low yields for the highest quality possible.

The variety of climates and soil types not only creates a diverse range of wine styles, it requires careful and adaptive viticultural expertise, to bring forth the best from each vine. Hand pruning, hand picking and training all give the vineyard workers intimate knowledge of every slope, and every clone. As is often said, the best fertiliser is the vigneron's footstep.

For three generations the Shelmerdine family has been among Victoria’s most prominent grape growers. Our vision is to embrace the honesty of the Australian terroir – the rocks, the soils, and the rhythm of the seasons – which impart their own identity into the wines.

Shelmerdine has vineyards in both Heathcote and the Yarra Valley showcasing the best varieties most suited to each region.
